Hardware monitoring

Post by Daveyd » Jul 10, 2012 7:24 pm

I recently built a new ESXi 5.0 environment with 3 ESXi hosts and a 5.0 vCenter. I added the vCenter server into my existing Veeam Monitor. Veeam Monitor is showing a hardware Warning alarm for each of the new hosts. he alarm is "Host hardware sensor status changed" with the description being "Sensor "VMware Rollup Health State" equal unknown.

Looking at the updated Hardware views in vCenter, all the Hardware sensors are reporting normal.

Any ideas?

Hi Dave,

Looks like you've faced the same situation that was described in this thread, please look it through: Intermittent Hardware Status Change Unknown

To workaround this Managed Object Browser limitation we are adding native host hardware monitoring (via CIM-XML protocol) in our next update, this should give you a much deeper visibility into host hardware sensors.

Thanks!

Cannot disclose any dates yet, but this should definitively happen this year.

I'll be at VMworld the end of August...hopefully when I stop by the Veeam booth, I'll be able to see the upgrade :mrgreen:

There are so many cool minor and major features coming to the next update that should make you happy...CIM-XML protocol is just the beginning.
